Description: Bake fresh homemade bread that would make your mom and grandma proud with our 50 year old sourdough starter.

This starter is made with our Hard Red Spring Whole Wheat. It comes from a mother given to us by a BC wheat farmer who has been caring for it for over 50 years. It has a sour and tangy flavour with fruity notes and makes a hearty, complex loaf. You can use this starter with any of our bread flours. Our sourdough starter is a living being teaming with microorganisms that will work diligently to break down gluten and release vital nutrients from the wheat. This means that every loaf of bread you make with our sourdough starter will be gut-friendly and nutritious, unlike the commercially-made bread available at the grocery store.

When made properly, your sourdough bread will have a crunchy crust, light and pillow center and a wonderfully complex and delicious sour flavour. You'll know you've made it right when your loaf is ravaged as soon as you take it out of the oven.
